GHC should recover better from bad type signatures

Description (last modified by igloo)
GHC currently bales out as soon as it finds an ill-kinded top-level type signature.
It didn't use to... it recovered and found more errors. An example is test tcfail113 (see diff below). The change is a consequence of some reorganisation in TcBinds.
Fixing this would be nice, but perhaps not all that important
